1 Jaguar / IX – Walking as a Shape-Shifter: Day 1 of 13


1 Jaguar / IX

Greetings Kin,

The Next 13 Days…

We begin again. Tone 1 returns us to the vibration of Unity and Oneness with the Creator.

The IMIX trecena opened our eyes of Consciousness. She offered the Inspiration to nurture our Spiritual Being. We learned the way to move forward in Spirit is to invest our Consciousness in an Intention, a Dream that we Create in our Imagination.

Given Free Will, All the Choices are up to us. It doesn’t matter what we create, as long as it’s something we Love. Where there’s Love, all roads lead to our Divine Destiny.

Jaguar/IX is the Shape-Shifter, capable to move in all dimensions to any Time and Place. We will be led by a Master of Consciousness who Knows Mother Earth like the “back of its hand.” Jaguar/IX is the most Spiritual of the Day Signs, guarding the Sacred Sites, Temples, and Altars where Humans make an Offering. Jaguar walks in stealth, so Highly Conscious of its surroundings that often the only sign of a Jaguar are the footprints left behind. Our brand new Spirit of Consciousness is taking its first walk in the Human realm of the Unknown, the darkness.

“IX” is an element of the Mayan language that expresses the “feminine” aspect (like the “IX” in IMIX). The Divine Feminine holds the Power of Discernment, the Power to Conceive the Meaning and Purpose of Divine Inspiration (the Divine Masculine aspect).

Jaguar/IX is the Day Sign of the shaman and mystic, who walks between Two Worlds. The Jaguar/IX trecena will Balance the Masculine and Feminine aspects of Consciousness. IX can teach us how to Shape-Shift between the “Darkness” of Earth and the “Light” in the realm of Spirit to Conceive our New Way in the world.

1st & 2nd UINALS:  A Call & Response
The first 20 days of the Tzolk’in calendar hold the energy of Number 1. The 1st Uinal marks a cycle of Divine Inspiration, a catalyst to Higher Consciousness. In the 260-day harvest cycle of our transformation, the 1st Uinal is the germination of a New Seed of our Self.  We are Awakened by a Call from the Creator.  The 2nd Uinal is the cycle of our Response by our Awakened Consciousness. Uinals 1 and 2 establish our Relationship with the Creator.

PORTAL DAYS: Element of Ether
Portal days thin the veil to Spiritual Dimensions and elevate our Awareness to our own Spiritual Gifts of Intuition and Knowing. The Jaguar/IX trecena has two Portals on the Peak Tones 7 and Tone 9. A Portal on 7 Sun/AHAU will magnify the Light of the Creator and the Balance between Heaven and Earth. On 9 Wind/IK a Portal Magnifies the Voice of the Creator that Calls us to Live for a Higher Purpose.  

PEAK DAYS: Peak Experience, Peak Performance

  • 6 Storm/CAUAC – generates momentum for Spiritual Growth through a Divine Spark from the Creator that Renews and Regenerates our Spirit.
  • 7 Sun/AHAU – establishes a Balance of the Above and the Below, through a Revelation of Light on Earth.
  • 8 Crocodile/IMIX – initiates the first Transformation of our New Spirit, a Higher Consciousness of the Spirit living in multiple dimensions of experience.
  • 9 Wind/IK – completes the Transformation by seating the Discernment of the Meaning and Purpose.

The Tzolk’in’s aspects of “Light” and “Dark” cycles reflect Human’s binary process of Comprehension. Blue and Red Day Signs hold the aspect “Light” (Divine Inspiration). White and Yellow Day Signs are “Dark” (Application of Inspiration). “Lights On,” we see the Creator’s Light. “Lights Off,” we create our own Light from the Wisdom of Experience.

Jaguar/IX, is a Day Sign of the “Dark,” a Walk to apply our new Truth of Unlimited Possibility.  In the Realm of Spirit where our Consciousness was born, we Knew it. In the Realm of Human, we have to Remember. The two sides of our Self will work together to accomplish a Dream. The Higher Self will always Know. The Lower Self makes a Choice to Remember, an Intention of Human Will. Human walks in the Unknown, acquiring Wisdom over time. Jaguar/IX calls us to a “Leap of Faith” that as Human, we can develop the Inner Strength to Believe what our Spirit Knows.

IX is the Creation that most loves Mother Earth. Jaguar lives its life independently, apart from raising its offspring. Positioned close to the ground, Jaguar recognizes Mother Earth as the Source of every Blessing. Jaguar’s Magic is a Vibration of Gratitude. Holding the Compassionate Love of the Divine Feminine, Jaguar is said to hear the heartbeat of Mother Earth. A Mother’s Heart beats with its child’s – sharing every joy and sorrow. IX is a Day Sign of “Spiritual Senses.” The Jaguar Senses the Consciousness of Mother Earth.

Our “Human magic” can be found through the Creator’s Gift to Human, Mother Earth. The closer we are to her, the more we will Know our Own Magic is Real. The Jaguar is the Archetype we can emulate. Jaguar’s characteristics will guide our way to walk between two worlds.

Today’s Forecast…

We begin our Journey from an Altar Within, our Place of Oneness with the Creator. Tone 1 is the Day of Unity with the Consciousness of the Creator. We will be Inspired to a Divine Intention to Remember the Power of the Love we hold in the realm of Spirit.  Jaguar/IX knows the way to all the Sacred Sites and Altars, walking in the stealth in a realm Unseen.

The Jaguar’s expression of Unity (Tone 1) is the Consciousness of Loving Mother Earth. We open our physical eyes to a world of Beauty. Our Spirit Knows the Consciousness of Every Living Thing. If we spend time with Mother Earth, she will show us.

The balcony “bird haven” I started when I began the journal has evolved into the greatest blessing of every day life. Peace of Mind is now as close as my window. I’ve become more Conscious of Mother Earth. The more I see of the birds outside my window, the more curious I am about their ways.  Last Spring I witnessed a Mother House Sparrow, teaching her baby to feed itself. It was a 3 day ordeal, with the baby intent on resorting to the original begging/crying position. There’s “magic” in seeing Love in such a small thing. They love by Divine Instinct. The Earth holds Love all around us. Human was given the Choice to open our own eyes to it.

Consciousness begets Consciousness. The more “Light” we hold in Consciousness, the more “Darkness” is expelled from our Human thoughts. Each Light we bring to an Altar within will dispel an illusion of darkness. We only have to Remember. Our lives are so much more interesting when we focus on something we Love.

1 Jaguar/IX is the beginning of a cycle of Spiritual Experience. Through a commitment of Consciousness, we will see the evidence in the world of a Power Greater than our own. “Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions where our shamanic abilities will open.” 

The Mayan Calendars hold the prophecy of accelerating Human Consciousness. The Human worry that we’ve started too late to make up for our past is only an illusion. Through Divine Justice a way was provided to “catch up.” Our slates are cleared for a new beginning. Our Spiritual Growth is an accelerating effort that will be Multiplied to Abundance.

To all my relations, may we open our eyes to the Beauty of Mother Earth. May we see the evidence of consciousness around us, remembering that the living things of the world are conscious of us. May we Choose to be Conscious of the Heartbeat of Mother Earth. May we serve a Sacred Altar that Honors her as the Source of every Human Blessing.  May we Give a Gift of Consciousness to Mother Earth in proportion to the Gift of Divine Consciousness we expect to receive.

in lak’ech, i am another you

I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. The “21 days” begin and end on Jaguar/IX.

21-Days of Gratitude: Day 21, and 1

I’m grateful for all the beautiful things I’ve seen on Mother Earth.

1 Jaguar/IX  (Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI)

Galactic Tone 1: Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

Jaguar/IX: Born with a deep love of the Mother Earth, Jaguar or shaman is directly tied to the source of all Earth magic. They possess great power of intellect and strength or character through integrity. Jaguar energy is feminine in nature and is the ruling spirit of jungles, plains, and mountains. The spirit of Jaguar inhabits the Mayan temples and is called on to assist in spiritual as well as in material ways. Jaguar is also the god/goddess of gratefulness. Patience born of strength and skill can turn to pounce of quick decision and action. Both bold and stealthful, Jaguars do not often attack directly and communications from them usually contain some mystery. In the absence of integrity, Jaguars power corrupts becoming a search for wealth and fame.

Cherokee, Panther/SAHO’NI: Panther is symbolized by comets, meteors, shooting stars, fireballs, and magicians.  Meteors appearing around the middle of November are Heralds of the Coming of the Light, the Cherokee New Year. Panther is the Shadow of the Sphinx, Herald of the Dawn, guardian of the night when the sun is traveling through the underworld. Panthers have unlimited imaginations, visualizations, and are spellbinding speakers. The Totem Jaguar is the guardian of the portals to other dimensions; shamanic abilities will open; multi-dimensional magic; healer, leader, way shower energy when used for spiritual growth.  Abuse would be for using this power for control or negative purposes; must find a powerful balance.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources. Links to sources and other resources of study are offered on the Daykeeper Resources Page. ~Debra]

How is your Spiritual path today?

I love to hear from you. Share your thoughts on the day, or share your local energy report.

  1. Thank you Debra, Jaguar Woman, 9 Eagle/MEN. I am grateful that you have become a keeper of the Mayan Daily Journal, for your posts and for the beauty and support of Mother Earth. I seek only to continue on this Earth walk, returning to the knowledge of the Sky Father and great dark mysterious Earth Mother as sources of our existence and the guides of our intentions. Again thanks for endeavors.
